GET  RACING  FROM   ONLY  400  BAHT! HAVE YOU SEEN THIS WOMAN AND THIS LITTLE GIRL? Niza was in school on Wednesday, the Thai Somtawin school on Phetkasem Road, when a Thai woman came to pick her up, who claimed that she was Niza’s mother. The teacher who dealt with her has apparently admitted that Niza denied that the woman was her mother, but because the woman gave her Thai ID Card as guarantee, the teacher allowed the woman to stay and play with Niza while she went to a meeting. When she came back, both the woman and Niza were gone. Later, it turned out, that the woman, who exchanged her ID card for the

child, was indeed Niza’s mother, Surat Enmak, and there has been no contact or sign of either of them since. The father, Henrik Engdahl, recognized the woman on the schools surveillance camera as his former wife, and is naturally very concerned at the intentions of his former wife. He has reported the kidnapping to the police but has been told that he must wait 15 days from the kidnapping before a thorough investigation can take place because of the police’s ‘stepby-step’ procedure. Henrik has travelled to Buri Ram, where he previously lived with his ex-wife, and Bangkok in the last few days in the hope of picking up their trail, as well as to speak to the Swedish Embassy. He will also go to Pattaya and Chonburi, places that he knows Surat has friends. Henrik told Swedish website ScandAsia. com, “Niza is a sentive girl, a daddys

girl, where I go she goes and she must be feeling horrible now being with strangers, who don’t know her needs.” He is angry with the school who just accepted an ID in exchange for the girl to go with a stranger and is contemplating a law suit against them when he gets back to Hua Hin. Niza was wearing a kindergarten school uniform when she was abducted. A dark blue dress, with a light blue shirt and a west over the shirt. She understand and speaks both Swedish and Thai. Henrik has offered a reward of 50,000 baht for finding his daughter. If you see this girl please contact your local police department in Thailand.

Condo Sales CALLING ALL HUA HIN CYCLISTS For many expats living in Hua Hin a common gripe is the lack of things to do during the day; well now a new option is available to those who like to get out and about and see the area from the comfort of their bicycle. Hua Hin Bicyclists is a new group of riders from the area formed to help get in contact with fellow riders. One of the group, Paul Hamon says “Many of us were looking for riding buddies, but didn’t know where to start”. Well it ended up that Facebook was the place to start, where they have formed a group (Hua Hin Bicyclists), and there is now a web site (www. huahinbicyclists.com), email (ride@huahinbicyclists.com) and with their advert in AWOL from this week (see page 16) they are hopeful to have a cavalcade of cyclists joining them in their regular rides very soon..

The group is open to bicyclists of varying types, road and mountain bike, fast and slow, thai and farang. Today they have about three rides per week with around fifteen

active members, and all particpants of the group are welcomed to list and lead rides or just join someone elses. Paul went on to say, “It’s a social group, we go for a ride and then usually end up somewhere for some food and a drink”. The ride details are listed on their facebook group which you can access through their website, and you should also be able to get more of an idea about the group from the ride photos hosted there, and the few examples here.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA Smallest man in the world in trouble with police for not using child seat The world’s smallest man Khagendra Thapa Magar has had a run in with police in Australia, who wanted to know why he was not travelling in a child’s booster seat. At just 67cm high and weighing 5kg, Khagendra is around the size of a six-month-old baby. While on a trip to Oz to raise awareness about sex trafficking and get donations for his charity, cops pulled over the car he was travelling in for a random breath test. Officers then questioned the driver as to why 19-year-old Khagendra was not sitting in a booster seat, only letting them continue on their journey after seeing his passport. Khagendra, who is named in the Guinness Book of Records as

Hua Hin Game Fishing 081 010 3748 (Eng/Swe/Thai) or 081 686 8768 (Thai)

the world’s shortest man, suffers from a condition called primordial dwarfism. But despite the obvious challenges presented by being so small, the teenager says he doesn’t wish he were taller. ‘I am just happy being who I am. My family loves me just the way I am and this is more important than anything else. I see myself as a unique individual,’ he told the news provider. GDANSK, POLAND Man sets sail on ice sheet with only vodka bottle for company Drunk Michal Kawolski was rescued by astonished coastguards after floating out to sea on a sheet of ice while still clasping a bottle of vodka. The 23-year-old was spotted by coastguards as he floated past them

off the coast of Gdansk, Poland. Mr Kawolski had been drinking with friends when, naturally, he decided it would be a good idea to test the strength of the ice that was forming on the shoreline of the Baltic Sea. One of Mr Kawolski’s drinking pals said: ‘We dared him to do it and it seemed like a good idea. There was a loud crack and then he started to float away. We thought it was funny at first but then he started to scream for help.’ The powerful currents pulled him about a kilometre out to sea. A rather shaken Mr Kawolski was taken to hospital where he stayed overnight to be treated for hypothermia. Following the ordeal Mr Kawolski said: ‘Well, I won’t be doing that again.’

Do you wonder why we say certain things, or what they really mean? Each week we will examine a different word or phrase and tell you how it came about. This week it is.. When in Rome, do as the Romans do It is polite, and possibly also advantageous, to abide by the customs of a society when one is a visitor. Why should an English proverb single out Rome and Roman values as especially to be emulated? Couldn’t we have had a ‘when in Ipswich, do as the Ipswichians do’ for example? As it turns out, it’s all to do with the travel arrangements of a couple of early Christian saints. St Augustine: Letters Volume I was translated from the Latin by Sister W. Parsons and published in 1951. Letter 54 to Januarius contains this original text, which date from circa 390AD: Cum Romanum venio, ieiuno Sabbato; cum hic sum, non ieiuno: sic etiam tu, ad quam forte ecclesiam veneris, eius morem serva, si cuiquam non vis esse scandalum nec quemquam tibi. which was translated as: When I go to Rome, I fast on Saturday, but here [Milan] I do not. Do you also follow the custom of whatever church you attend, if you do not want to give or receive scandal. Januarius, who was later canonised as a martyr saint, was Bishop of Naples at the time. The above dates the source of the proverb to at least as early as the beginnings of the Christian church. The implied flexibility on dogma and acceptance of the religious and social practices of other cultures seems to be more akin to the contemporary Buddhist teachings of the Dalai Lama than those of present day Christian authorities.

The use of the proverb in English isn’t recorded until much later - well into the Middle Ages. Robert Burton’s The Anatomy of Melancholy was first published in 1621. Burton makes oblique reference to the phrase, without using it explicitly: ...like Mercury, the planet, are good with good, bad with bad. When they are at Rome, they do there as they see done, puritans with puritans, papists with papists He was slightly predated by Henry Porter, who came a little nearer to the present day version of the proverb in his play The pleasant history of the two angry women of Abington, 1599: Nay, I hope, as I have temperance to forbear drink, so have I patience to endure drink: Ile do as company dooth; for when a man doth to Rome come, he must do as there is done. The Interesting letters of Pope Clement XIV [a.k.a. Lorenzo Ganganelli] were published in 1777. Letter XLIV [to Prior Dom Galliard] contains the earliest version of the proverb as currently used in English that is found in print: The siesto, or afternoon’s nap of Italy, my most dear and reverend Father, would not have alarmed you so much, if you had recollected, that when we are at Rome, we should do as the Romans do - cum Romano Romanus eris. The proverb is so clichéd as to have been adapted to suit many other locations - a web search brings up thousands. Its familiarity, and the expectation that everyone knows the ending, has caused it also to be used in the shortened version - ‘when in Rome...’. This dates back to at least the 1930s when a play of that title, written by Charles Faber, was performed in New York.

PIG FARMER A pig farmer went to a vet to see about artificial inseminating his female pigs. Vet - “Well you have two options. The first we can do quite easily. Each of your pigs can be inseminated at a cost of £1000 per pig”. Farmer - “What?! ... £1000 a pig?! ... That sounds a tad expensive ... I’m only a poor pig farmer after all. What was the second option?” Vet - “Well, it’s quite simple really ... you just do it yourself”. Farmer - “Myself? How does that work? And more importantly how much will it cost?” Vet - “ It won’t cost you a thing. You simply have sex with the animal yourself” Farmer - “ And how do I know if it’s worked?” Vet - “ Well, after you’ve had sex with the animal, in the morning if it’s laid on it’s back with it’s trotters in the air ... you know it’s worked” Farmer - “ I’m not sure about this ... I’ll have a think about it” A few days go by and after weighing up all the options the farmer decides to go for it ... and try it himself. He gathers all the pigs up in his van and drives them to a small wood in the top field. After plucking up enough courage and trying to gain wood, he has sex with each of the pigs. Afterwards he drives them all back to the farm and retires to bed for the night. Next moring he hurriedly runs down stairs and out into the field to check his pigs ... nothing. They’re all just trotting around the sty eating and carrying on as normal. “Bugger” he thinks to himself. So he continues this for two weeks, but to no avail. “Right that’s it ... I’ll give it one last go” the farmer says. So off he goes in his van up to the top field, armed with viagra, stud delay spray, anal lube and a copy of the Karma Sutra. To help the process he even dresses

He downs the bottle of viagra, sprays his member with stud delay spray, props up the Karma Sutra on a tree on proceeds to shag every pig, in a variety and numerous postions, at least ten times each. After his ten hour pig sex fest he drives all the pigs back to the farm, locks them in their sty and, walking like John Wayne, wearily climbs the stairs and goes to bed. But before he closes his eyes he says to his wife “ Do me a favour ... let me know if the pigs are acting differently in the morning?” “Right you are love” replies his wife and off he went to sleep. Next moring his wife opens the bedroom curtains ... “Oh my! ... Quick quick come and have a look at this?!” the wife shouts excitedly. The farmer jumps up out of bed “ What?! What?! Are they all laid on their backs with their trotters in the air??” “ No “ replies the wife puzzled ... “They’re all in the van beeping the horn”. PROSTATE EXAM After experiencing the discomfort and embarrassment of a prostate test on the National Health Service, a friend of mine decided to have his next test carried out while visiting in Thailand where the beautiful nurses are rather more gentle and accommodating. As usual he was asked to strip off, he lay naked on his side on the bed and the nurse began the examination. “At this stage of the procedure it’s quite normal to get an erection” said the nurse. “I haven’t got an erection” said the man. “No, but I have” replied the nurse.

Eat in or Takeaway 081 455 5298 CAPRICORN DEC 22 - JAN 19 Someday in the future, humanity will have a healthy attitude toward sexuality, but until then, you have an idea that could make you incredibly rich. AQUARIUS JAN 20 – FEB 18 You are about to embark on a great journey across an infinite ocean of possibilities, unless of course the more cynical theories about the afterlife are correct. PISCES FEB 19 – MAR 20 Your confusion over the exact meaning of the term “elope” will become apparent this week when parts of the bodies begin to turn up in the desert. ARIES MAR 21 – APR 20 Venus, the Herald of Love, passes into your sign this week, but it’s so creepy in there that She only takes about six minutes to get out again.

TAURUS APR 21 – MAY 21 Just keep telling yourself it’s all going to be alright until you finally get it through your head once and for all that you can’t trust anything you say. GEMINI MAY 22 – JUNE 21 Although it’s true you can successfully hide certain things in plain sight without anyone noticing, it turns out not to be true of a whole Girl Scout troop’s worth of corpses. CANCER JUN 22 – JUL 22 You tend to think of yourself as a big neurotic mess, but don’t sell yourself short. You’re also a big psychotic mess on top of it all. LEO JUL 23 – AUG 22 The stars don’t believe they actually have to say this, but just because you find a recipe that makes pancakes for 1,500 people doesn’t mean you actually have to make that many.

VIRGO AUG 23 – SEP 22 You will die alone, unmourned, and unloved, but because you do it on live television, you’ll still manage to be considered a success. LIBRA SEP 23 – OCT 23 Your problem, if you’re honest with yourself, isn’t that you love too much. It’s that you make love to people’s mailboxes too frequently. SCORPIO OCT 24 – NOV 21 Don’t worry: You’re more than just a collection of annoying, loosely bundled neuroses. There are some tightly wound and dangerous psychoses in there, too. SAGITTARIUS NOV 22 – DEC 21 It’s true that your heart is mature beyond your years, which is nice, except in the case of your rapidly aging mistrial and aortic valves.

THE AWOL POOL LADDER

The AWOL Ladder is a new individuals only pool competition which is free to join at www.freeonlineleague.com/myleague/ awolpoolladder - you will be contacted when the ladder is ready to start, planned to be when enough players sign up. The idea of the ladder is to provide all levels of pool players the opportunity to play over a longer period of games than the team leagues allow, thus giving a better chance to both improve and enjoy a longer stint at the table. You will be able to play at a time and place of you and your opponents choosing. You challenge players above you in the ladder and if you beat them you swap positions (maximum positions above that can be challenged is two). Once the ladder is established a knockout competition will also be introduced. If you are having any problems accessing or signing on to the website or for more information please email info@awolonline. net. More details next week. Go to www.freeonlineleague.com/ myleague/awolpoolladder to sign up now!

Reliability PREMIER LEAGUE/FA CUP NEWS KICKED OFF BY BOBBY’S BAR FIXTURES AND PREDICTIONS

(all times Thailand)

FA Cup Quarter Finals Saturday, 12 March 2011 Birmingham v Bolton, 19:45 (True Sport 1/HD) Having already reached and won one cup, the home side will feel they have a good chance at getting to Wembley again (as the semi finals are being played there). Bolton however are not an easy team to brush aside, and this will be a very close contest, despite the Blues recent performances in the league. Having only played the previous Wednesday Birmingham may not have the energy required to win this, and we think there is every chance of a replay. Sunday, 13 March 2011 Man Utd v Arsenal, 00:15 (True Sport HD & ?) All the attention will be focused by the media on this one, but to the two managers involved it could almost be seen as an unnecessary distraction from the Premier League and Champions League. We think it is highly likely that both will pick teams that are not regarded as their strongest, which will inevitably be criticised and called an insult to the competition. However even their second strings will put on a good match, and for United, possibly a better one than their first team has lately. These games are always heated exchanges, and with the likely youthful lineups, this may be even more so. Arsenal have not had the best of times at Old Trafford over the years but this time we think they have the edge and will continue their quest for another League and Cup double. Stoke v West Ham, 21:00 (True Sport HD & ?) This will be the fourth time these clubs have met this season, and the second time at the Brittania Stadium; that one was a draw, but the other two games have been wins for the Hammers, including last week’s comprehensive league game. Stoke will surely put on a better show than that this time, but West Ham are on an impressive run right now and have been saving their best performances for Cup games. The first goal in this game will be crucial; if it goes to the home side they will dig in and West Ham will find it tough, but if the away side get it we feel it could be another battering for Stoke. Based on form and past results, we have to predict an away win here.

Tables do not include result of Everton v Birmingham match Man City v Reading, 23:45 (True Sport HD & ?) The only match involving a team outside the Premier League, with Reading from the Coca Cola Championship facing moneybags Manchester City. Nothing to lose for the underdogs and we expect a plucky and spirited performance from them. City have not been at their best recently and we expect multiple changes to their last team but it will be a gamble by Mancini if he does that. However with such riches at his disposal (and no we don’t mean Gareth Barry or Joleon Lescott) he has quality back up in every position. We think this will be decided by the odd goal, but unfortunately for the football romantics it will be in the home side’s favour.

FORMULA ONE IS RUBBISH, ADMITS ECCLESTONE LONDON, ENGLAND BERNIE Ecclestone has confessed that Formula One is dull and he’s sick of looking at it. The world’s longest midlife crisis has spent the last 30 years somehow managing to convince people to gawp at a 200mph rollerskate that weighs less than your dinner and costs more than your house. The deception has made him one of the world’s richest men under four foot tall and has been described by financial experts as ‘a sporting ponzi scheme with lots of big-titted blonde women milling around for no apparent reason’. Now Ecclestone has finally admitted that Formula One is not so much a spectacle as it is an unremitting procession of eye-clawing dreariness enjoyed by people who need to have a right good word with themselves.

F1 SUPREMO CONFESSES TO BEING BEHIND BAHRAIN PROTESTS IN BIZARRE ATTEMPT TO SPICE UP THE SPORT “You want 5 million dollars for a herd of kangaroos to jump across the track? You’re ‘avin’ a larf, and no, I do not look like Andy Warhol””

He said: “Even if we make it rain spacehips onto the track every five minutes and tune the engines to sound like Kylie Minogue reaching a spectacular climax it’s still going to be like staring at a stretch of the M25 but with an even higher concentration of tedious men with too much money sitting in pointlessly expensive cars. “You can carry on watching in the hope of a really good pile-up but you

may as well watch Eastenders in the hope that Arthur comes out of his allotment shed with Dirty Den’s head on a stick.” Earlier this year Ecclestone drew up a series of ideas to make the sport more exciting, including the use of agent provocateurs to provoke a revolution in Bahrain and then attempting to stage grand prix right in the middle of it. But the plan was abandoned when a feasibility study showed motor racing was better at quelling unrest than a job-lot of tranquilser darts. Ecclestone now hopes to spice up this year’s British grand prix by stopping it halfway through for a poetry reading by Sir Ian McKellen.
